Our experience-based course in effective test automation is designed to provide QA employees with both the tools and the practical know-how needed to implement manageable and robust test automation. The course covers test automation at both API (REST/SOAP) and GUI level and includes both theoretical and practical sessions. The course exercises use an appropriate HTTP tool (depending on the development environment) for REST alongside Selenium for website testing. During the two days of the course, you will receive an introduction to test automation and learn about all the essential approaches and tricks required to create sound, effective and sustainable test automation.
Who is this course for?
This course is aimed at anyone with an interest in technology wanting to learn how to implement or maintain robust, effective and manageable test automation based on their particular situation. We believe
that the typical course participant works in QA or as a developer with an interest in championing test automation.
After completing the course
After completing this course, you will be able to produce a sustainable and successful test automation strategy and have the necessary knowledge to implement a test automation protocol that is both robust and manageable.
